With XeLaTeX, if you use the package "polyglossia", hyphenation
patterns (included in the package "hyph-utf8") corresponding to the
language you select will be applied. For instance:


I can see that "hyph-utf8" has patterns for several other Indian

which will be part of the next TeX Live. And Fran?ois will certainly
be willing to add support for those languages to his "polyglossia".

I am still unable to use polyglossia .. perhaps some version problem...
I am getting the following error... any advice?
